Click me for the final version!
More than a month ago STK was invited by Nuno Amado and his lovely wife Virgulina Labareda to participate in a revival contest for Zakarella, an ancient and sexy comic from the 70’s! Wow we didn’t even know such a character existed in Portugal! Although the contents were all pg16 (or more…eeep) the artwork was really incredible, and so full of retro goodiness.
But the challenge for STK was to recreate this lovely lass in a more eastern design and we were up to the challenge to the point of winning along side Jo Bonito’s work! XD Go us!! The artwork is now being displayed in Beja’s International Comic Festival and will be displayed again in November there. But we’ll be sure to inform you properly about it.
So to celebrate our victory and to thank Nuno and Virgulina (that’s not her real name just in case you’re wondering hehe) for the cute award and dinner party we’re sharing part of the sketch that gave birth to our pencil and watercolour adventure xD
Should have scanned it but we got lazy…♥
